If you read my post on setting aspirations for 2015, you’ll see that one of my goals is to eat better. I am trying to follow more of a plant-based diet and cut out a lot of empty calories. In general, I don’t have the biggest sweet tooth (that crown goes to my sister). It tends to be savouries that are my stumbling point when it comes to eating well. What I do tend to find is on the odd occasion when I get a craving for something sweet, it seems to be insatiable. No amount of chocolate seems to help, cake doesn’t scratch the surface and sweets are just a drop in the pan. So it became clear another approach was needed.
Through Pinterest and Instagram I have discovered an array of healthy options that I never knew existed. You can make ‘ice-cream’ from bananas and fruit – who knew? Chia puddings, overnight oats, and healthy brownies – the options are endless. Then I discovered raw ‘no-bake’ slices and bars and I was sold. What’s not to like? After experimenting with different recipes, and taking bits I liked from here and there I came up with this.
